It has nothing to do with pride... just time and cost of releasing a quality service.

Thanks

Default cylinder heads

got my heads back today work looks good,turn around was fast like one week . communication was good up till the payment and return back to me. I got no tracking info after a pm, one email, and one telephone call with a message. when I shipped the heads out they were in subaru cylinder head boxes and packed accorinding. when they came back they were in bubble wrapped in a box with fender covers wrapped around them and the outer box was pretty beaten up. not impressed with your shipping of my product back . this is less than what it came in. thanks

Sorry about your packaging. We usually ship the heads back in the same packaging they came in, but your boxes were pretty beat up by the time they showed up here, so we re-packaged them. Please check and make sure the heads themselves have not been damaged in shipping.

I apologize about the lack of communication after the heads were shipped, but I believe these contacts were all made within 1-2 days during our weekend. We also managed to get them turned around quicker for you, so we didn't expect it to be an issue.

Thanks

Question 06 wrx d25 heads on an 08 sti ej257

I am considering the option of mating my 06 wrx d25's to an 08 sti ej257. Any pointers, warnings, heads up's, pro's-con's would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The 06 WRX heads have a different combustion chamber design which will raise the compression ratio significantly when used with 257 pistons. We worked with CP to design a 255 specific piston for this reason.

Thanks

Would this service work with 97 ej20k heads? Could they be sent with everything removed but valves/springs/retainers? I don't want to damage the heads attempting to pull the valves.

Thanks

We just finished fully rebuilding a set of K heads actually. I'd recommend going with a full valve job to inspect all the components.

Would be nice to have a valve job but setting lash on my end (once they're back) would be a bish, since you guys can't do it without being bolted to the block. Also after all is totalled, getting a different set of heads would probably be more cost effective in the long run. I would basically have a $1300+ set of 1997 heads. I'd get the valve job done closer, where the block is getting done in Houston for example.

We can set the lash, but we always recommend to only set it after the heads are bolted down. In most cases it doesn't change significantly, but I have personally seen a couple motors where the lash changed enough to throw it out of spec.

Thanks

No problem... you can just send the heads in without the hardware and your local shop can do the rest of the work.

Sorry Ed, but i REALLY have to disagree with you there. Anyone who has ever run an autocross knows that this is a HUGE problem for small displacement motors. My 2.0L with a 16G on it drops out of boost on almost all direction changng elements in a given course. Basically, i need to increase my off-bost performance...if i was running a stock turbo, maybe it would be different, but the HTA i'm gona be runing is going to require a little help at the low end.

Yes, on a road course, this isn't ever an issue...but i'm not building a road course car. So i'm not worried about affecting my top end.

I am just wondering if this is a good way to create more low-end torque, or should i let the smaller head chamber bump the compression a bit. I just want to make sure i have all the information so i can make the right choice...i only get one shot at this.

Why don't the sharp edges and shape of the combustion chamber have those issues on the 2.0L, is it the difference in the bore that causes the combustion chamber shape to be so out-of-whack? What causes the sharp edges to become a problem with the higher displacement?
Ok, been reading for a while, Dude, a wrx isn't really an auto cross car. A lightweight RWD car is really and AUTOcross car. 90 degree corners are for smaller cars with far less grip. Get a different car!!, like a corvette "great lil autocrosser" Id rather autocross a vette anyhow. If you wanna road race. and have the cash to blow, buy the 150k subaru rally car and build an engine for it... A wrx is a great street car, and a very fun toy, my dream car for the street!! But if your driving your toy to autocrosses, You are prone to failure. Real race teams have a few good motors on stand by. Buy a miata. . .
If you reall wanna kick the rear out, Try getting an sti tranny and changing your power to the rear wheels. Dont try to change what the car is designed for , just to suit your power needs. You could probably even get an corvette engine swap, if you really want that low end torque feel. Ive seen multiple shops working on this swap as we speak. .
